Default Proof of Fermat's Last Theorem

I think I proved FLT using binomial theorem and properties of polynomial equations. I may be wrong but hope I'm not. Everybody interested please open

You are deluded.

What is it about unqualified amateurs that compels them to try
to prove FLT??

I say "unqualified" here, because you clearly are. Why do I say this?
Because you are unable to determine whether (your own) proof
that uses totally elementary methods is correct.

Confidence in impeccability not necessarily protects from making mistakes, otherwise all problems would be solved by today.
I prefer to be prepared to unpleasant surprises.

Clueless. You can't even write two proper English sentences. What you wrote
is not proper English.

There also exists a big difference between impeccability and knowing enough
mathematics to vet ones own work.

I invite to examine my proof everybody interested. You are definitely not.
Good bye and enjoy your arrogance.

I am not the one claiming to have proved something that has eluded
all mathematicians for centuries. Who is the arrogant one? I simply observed that you are incompetent. A judgment that I am qualified to make.

Enjoy your ignorance.

A philosophical question: Which is more enjoyable? Ignorance or Arrogance? (Though I am not saying that either is actually the case here, of course...)

I've heard that "ignorance is bliss", but then how would you know, if you're ignorant?

Some of us old-timers used to hold that BLISS is ignorance.

When I worked for DEC, I used to code in BLISS.

We called it "the agony of BLISS".
